Review: ASUS Maximus V Formula @ ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 9:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next to the Maximus V Extreme ASUS has a second ROG motherboard in their recent Z77 line-up ROG (Republic of Gamers) line-up. What we`re talking about is the Maximus V Formula which comes with a few less features but therefore also a lower price tag. We`re really curious to see wether this board can keep up with the Extreme monster of if it has to stand in the shadow of the big brother."

GIGABYTE Z77X-UP5TH Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are on hand to deliver a review of the high-end Z77X-UP5TH. This will be the successor to UD5H, equipped with a similar feature-pack but even better - WiFi/BT out of the box, dual Thunderbolt ports, Ultra Durable 5 and visual eye-candy that is so stunning it might even take off the cornea. Stay with us as we thoroughly examine the new Z77X-UP5TH."

Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Warhorse to Workhorse! @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 8:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte UD5 moves well past the level of standard low end boards and is solidly embedded in the mid ranges area. Though it is the same price as the recently reviewed G1.Sniper M3 its functionality is very different and that is where we are going to go with this review; functionality. We are going to look at getting the job done as that is more important to most users than overclocking, getting gold medals at HWBot or setting records. We want this board to sweat! We will be moving beyond the CPU, GPU and memory tests alone. We will not consider the transfer rate of one drive or the performance of one raid. We will focus on no single item here. We will try to focus on all things at one time to find out if Gigabyte can deliver up some motherboard multitasking? But how does the motherboard have anything to do with multitasking? We will get there; but first the basics."

The Best Sub-$100 Intel Z77 Motherboard?
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We are going to be looking at three Intel Z77 motherboards that can all be purchased for under $100 before shipping. The three boards today will include the ASRock Z77 Pro3, BIOSTAR TZ77B, and the GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H. All three of the motherboards are considered full ATX though their dimensions are slightly under the full ATX measurement of 305mm x 244mm (12in x 9.6in). By keeping the PCB smaller, the companies are able to save some money on the production costs of each of the boards and pass the savings along to the end user. They may be losing some precious real estate on the motherboard, but they aren't trying to pack as many 'extras' on to the board..."

ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE Motherboard Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 9:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Want a motherboard that won`t have you wishing you chose differently? There are plenty of reasons why ASUS` P8Z77-V DELUXE deserves your consideration. It`s a feature-packed board that gives you everything you`d hope for in a motherboard - and then throws in some extra for good measure."

Asrock X79 Extreme11
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those that require the ability to create a RAID array with up to eight 6Gb/s drives along with extreme multi-GPU setups will find the X79 Extreme11 actually fairs rather well in terms of value. For those that do not require these features the X79 Extreme11 is obviously overkill and Asrockā€™s less extreme motherboards will fit the bill better, and with the X79 Extreme9, 7, 6, 4 and 3 to choose from, all options are covered.

ASUS Maximus V GENE @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 9:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS introduced their Z77 motherboards with the P8 series and we have to say, the P8Z77-V Deluxe and Pro we reviewed, are another example of ASUS staying on top of the industry. These boards have some of the most creative and innovative features we have seen in some time. At that time, ASUS did not have any Republic of Gamer (ROG) motherboards ready to rock for the enthusiasts. But, just when you thought things were cooling off, ASUS heats things back up with the Z77 Maximus series. The Maximus series is available in the Gene, Formula and Extreme varieties, giving ASUS a good / better / best product lineup of choices for the gaming enthusiast. Will it live up to The Republic of Gamers tradition? Let`s dive in and see. Click through for the full review."

[Affiliates News] Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Motherboard Review @ APH Networks
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 7:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
According to Wikipedia, social determinants of health are the economic and social conditions - and their distribution among the population - that influence individual and group differences in health status. It probably is not terribly surprising to you if I said people in developed countries have dramatically longer life expectancy than those who live in developing nations, simply because the latter lack even the basic necessities for living, such as clean water and food. But for those who live in developed countries such as Canada and the United States, what determinants do we include when we benchmark these nations against each other? Many researchers propose factors such as income, housing, and employment. While this is nice and agreeable, in my personal opinion, they are all missing one very important aspect. If anyone wants to be healthy, what they truly need is a fast computer that starts every time and never crashes. At the end of the day, let`s admit it: We have all screamed and yelled when your computer crashes at just the wrong time, or at the very least, become frustrated at unbearably slow PCs. All these will cost a few years of your life in the long run. So for health related reasons... I think it is time for you to upgrade your desktop, haha. After all, you only live once. To give you a hand, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is a mainstream performance motherboard from Gigabyte. Promising excellent performance, top notch stability, and rock solid reliability that won`t break the bank, will the GA-Z77X-UD3H fit the bill? Read on to find out!"

ASRock X79 Extreme11 Motherboard @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 10:08A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASRock X79 Extreme11 is probably the most complete motherboard released so far for the LGA2011 platform. It includes seven PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, eight additional SAS/SATA-600 ports, eight USB 3.0 ports, and a high-end audio controller. The most important feature of this motherboard is the presence of two PLX PEX8747 chips, which allow you to install up to four PCI Express 3.0 video cards truly working at x16 speed. Let`s check it out."

Apple Thunderbolt Display Presents Problems For Linux
     Sun, Aug 12 2012 | 9:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past few weeks I have been trying out the Apple`s Thunderbolt Cinema Display under Linux. While this 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt Display is beautiful and delivers stunning quality, it does illustrate another area where the current Linux hardware support currently comes up short. There`s both good and bad news about using a Thunderbolt-based display under your favorite Linux distribution."

Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH Motherboard @ Hardware Secrets
     Sat, Aug 11 2012 | 11:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z77X-UP4 TH is a mainstream socket 1155 motherboard from Gigabyte targeted to the Ivy Bridge processors (third-generation Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors). Its main highlight is the presence of two Thunderbolt ports. Let`s see what the Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH has to offer."

MSI Z77A-GD55 Motherboard Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 10:38A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* If you`re looking for a good Z77 motherboard to pair up with that shiny Ivy Bridge CPU but don`t want to break the bank, MSI`s Z77A-GD55 is well worth a look. Despite its modest $165 price-tag, the GD55 offers a rich feature-set, looks good, has a robust EFI and even makes overclocking easy for those who don`t care for the manual route."

ASUS P8Z77 WS @ Bjorn3D
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 10:05A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has hit the Z77 playing field with amazing force and their P8Z77 WS looks to be an utterly amazing and very capable offering. 4 Way SLI server grade stability and features add up to one hell of an amazing looking board on paper. Can it perform as well as its specs claim?"

ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Champion Intel LGA2011 @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 2:54A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A Champion has emerged! The ASRock Fatal1ty Champion seeks to beat out all other Intel X79 Express contenders, clad in red and black armor and carrying a loadout of features that is sure to have other boards run and hide. Can the ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Champion live up to its claim?"

Gigabyte B75M-D3H Intel LGA 1155 @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 10:38A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte sent me one of their entry-level products to check out, called the B75M-D3H. Yet make no mistake, just because this product is value-oriented, does not mean it by any means cheap! What makes Gigabyte`s B75M-D3H so great? We`ll find out in our review."
